I can't grasp the difference between the "searching..." and "accepted" folds. Based on the info I can find, "accepted" seems to represent some kind of local minimum. But "searching..." and "accepted" seem to always change at the exact same time, and the difference between the two folds is typically so slight that I can't see it.

Is anyone able to explain?

Thanks.

"Accepted" is the ongoing best answer for this specific model so far... the program then explores around that ("searching...") and if it finds a "better" solution while searching it "accepts" that one.

Thanks for your answer.

Why, then, does the accepted energy go up as well as down? If "Accepted" is the best so far, then it should never go up.
